    Hey. Ive got the ink itch and have decided to get something related to my favourite band (blink 182). No debates about the band please, thats not really for here . Anyways i'm pretty sure that there no lyrics that mean enough for me to get them on my body so i thought about getting the sexy nurse from one of their album covers.

    What i like about is that only the proper blink fans will know its a blink tattoo seeing as the band names no there or any recognisable lyrics aren't there. Thinkin about getting it on my shoulder.

    Just let me know if you think its a total douchebag of an idea...

    I agree with Trigger, do you really want to end up with something like this:

    -the nurse has a badge that says blink 182 on it so the bands name is there.
    -its prob one of the most recognizable album covers ever.
    -the nurse is acually a clorty pornstar, with all sorts of drugs and alcohol problems.

    Don't do it! As everyone else has said, portrait tattoos rarely look good (unless you have a very experienced artist), not just fans know that cover (I knew what one you meant before I saw it and I'm not a fan) and it's just a creepy thing to get tattooed on you anyway (a creepy, ****gy nurse)

    Mate, if you like it then go for it. **** what we think, it's you who will have it on your body for the rest of your life.

    If you get a tattoo of a band, sod's law states that they will all immediately find religion, start playing the Tibetian nose-flute, join a peculiar fascist group, and release ten albums doing new-age covers of classic Nazi propaganda songs.

    It's just not a good idea tbh. You have no idea if you'll be hideously ashamed of having ever liked Blink-182 in ten years' time.

    Thank you!

    OP, in my opinion even if you could a really good portrait artist, I don't think it's the best idea for a tattoo...

    Off the top of my head you could get the actual Blink logo.. a bit cliche perhaps but a simple enough way of showing your love for the band..

    Or how about the '182°' one that Mark has in one of their videos?
